Ordering update... November 28th, 2008

Just a quick update on the book/7" status, since some people have been asking lately.

The record pressing plant was a lot more bogged down than they originally seemed to indicate, so my job has not been pressed yet. I have been told it will get done 'soon' & am hopeful this will be the case.

The books are done, and are currently in self-storage awaiting the vinyl arrival. As soon as I get them, the orders will start going out immediately. I will also be delivering the vinyl & books to Six Feet Under Records, so he can ship his orders as well.

We still have about 1/2 of the blue vinyl at the moment, but they are selling steadily. The white vinyl is 100% gone - selling out the morning the pre-ordering started.

For those of you living under a rock, the Radio Silence book is out, and would make a great addition to your bookshelf of quality reading material. You can read about it here. It is one of the best looking books about hardcore I have ever owned, and you should run out and buy it(if you have not already done so). They gave my book a nice plug on their site, and I really appreciate it.

I am hoping to have the records before Christmas, and will update this blog as it gets closer to arrival. I will be doing some sort of record release show, as well as a book signing, once the book/7" is out... and I will post here when the information presents itself. For as many headaches/delays that the book had - I thought things would be smooth & simple for the records getting pressed - boy, was I wrong. I have been putting out records for almost 20 years, and this is easily the slowest service I have ever gotten from a plant. Part of the problem is the fact that there are so few pressing plants even around anymore. And now that some major labels have started pressing vinyl again - the plants are extra busy.

Thanks for all of your patience(to those that pre-ordered), and spread the word about I book too! Thanks! DB
